Let's revisit Natasha & Anish's mesmerizing tale of love and grandeur. This love story, set against the splendid backdrop of the JW Marriott Anaheim Resort, was nothing short of a fairytale. The venue, known for its luxurious elegance, played a pivotal role in their dream day, offering a blend of sophistication and comfort that beautifully complemented the couple's style. Natasha's beauty was elevated to celestial heights by the exquisite craftsmanship of Sabyasachi Official. The magic in her look was perfected by Dolled Up by Lulu. The air was fragrant with the aroma of fresh blooms from Bloombox Designs. The allure of the setting was heightened by the rhythmic beats of 3D Sounds, whose DJing skills set a lively tempo. Amidst laughter and dance, the ingenious Pixter 360 photo booth captured moments in dynamic frames. The feast by Jay Bharat was a culinary delight, each dish a testament to South Asia's rich, diverse flavors, complementing the sweet essence of the day echoed in the delectable creations of Tasty Temptations Catering. As the night unfolded, Lex Wedding Films masterfully encapsulated the essence of this journey, their cinematography not just recording but storytelling, infusing life into each frame. Check it out!
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Met through a dating app, and the rest is history! Throughout our time getting to know one another- we helped each other grow, constantly laughed, tried new adventures, and mainly enjoyed the quality time. We both felt organic and natural to be in each other's company, and that's when we both knew marriage was the next step.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Anish knows how much I love the scenery. I never thought what my proposal would be, but I did know that I wanted it to be intimate; when we both went on our Europe trip, that's when he proposed in Florence, Italy. The location, the view, the moment- truly was a magical experience. In my eyes, it was a fairytale proposal of a lifetime!
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
We both had a vision, budget, and multiple trackers to stay within the scope of our wedding vision. We had a lot of help from our families, which we are both grateful for. The wedding decor was inspired by Bridgerton :)
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always knew that I wanted to wear a pastel lehenga. I love the color red and the significance it has in an Indian wedding. However, with makeup, hair, and jewelry, I felt that the color would have been too overpowering. My mother and I went to numerous stores in Mumbai in search of my bridal lehenga. When we both arrived at Sabyasachi, I saw the pink bridal lehenga and knew that it was the one.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
No, Indian wedding planning is so stressful!
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
In planning for each event, I paid a lot of attention to guest experiences where they could truly enjoy something in particular from that event.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first dance! The song was - Mere Haath Mein from Fanaa & Married Life from the Pixar movie Up. My husband literally came up with the choreography the Friday before Wedding Week! I was so nervous that we would forget our moves, but luckily we did not! To this day, I still watch our first dance.
For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.
Each event came with a theme—Haldi Ceremony- Whimsical Pastel that used a lot of yellow, lavender, and light pink. We provided spicy banana chips ( because it's yellow and tasty.. duh) and minter cooler drinks to our guests—Grah Shanti- Rajasthan, where the color palette was coral & blues. We made cool floral stickers to put on the gift bag for our guests. The Sangeet is multicolored to represent a more "Mela/carnival look." We curated a special Mango lava drink that looks really festive for our guests. The wedding was inspired by Bridgerton- pops of berries, blush pinks, and greenery. The reception was Romance meets Great Gatsby. We had a photo booth and 360 LED walls, which our guests loved!
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Have a vision, curate a budget, and create trackers to stay in scope for your wedding planning. During the week of your wedding, drink lots of water and use hydrating masks/lotion to look fresh for your wedding events.
May this love story inspire you, as it has inspired us to believe in the power of love and charm.
